WTB: Leather Gunto Scabbard Cover

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

 

I am looking for an original WW2-era Japanese leather Shin-Gunto 'combat' sword scabbard covering. The wooden saya it will go onto is 26" long, (66cm). The attachment ring is 3" down from the scabbard throat (7.62cm). So the cover would need to be slightly longer than this to fit properly.

 

The cover doesn't need to be in perfect condition. Just looking for one that will display well. Also would like it to still have all or most of it's stitching intact.

 

The tusba is an old Edo period solid iron piece, and is not cut out for a retaining strap. So no need for the cover to have the little brass snaps on it.

 

Pics are from the auction. 

 

Just PM me here if you have one to sell or trade, or know someone who might. 

 

Thanks!
